Tofino Motel HarbourView

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The Tofino Motel is walking distance from all the restaurants and shops in Tofino. The rooms are big, with a refrigerator. Free wifi, coffee maker.Our room (and I believe all rooms) had a spectacular view of the harbour. Strongly recommended. Staff was friendly and helpful. For Tofino, it's also affordable. We loved it.

Tofino is a surfer town with a laid back vibe, so why stay in a $$$$ out of town resort? The Tofino Motel (sometimes: Tofino Harbourview Motel) was really excellent. Great value, within walking distance of Shelter, Wolf in the Fog and loads of other great places to eat, and with magnificent views over the harbour. It was great to be able to have everything on your doorstep, particularly given some of the early starts for the local whale and bear tours! The room was clean and as billed: beds were comfortable, bathroom spotless, fridge, coffee machine, absolutely fine. Very quiet. Laurie and the other team member who we spoke to were both really helpful and had lots of great recommendations. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the upper floor, as the views looked better and there was probably less no...

The Tofino Motel is affordable, very clean, quiet, and with a spectacular view of the habour. The room came with a refrigerator, and we really appreciated the friendliness of Laurie (the hotel owner/ operator) who checked us in. She showed an interest in our activities, and wasn't shy about offering up suggestions on tour operators, where the best breakfast place was, etc. She was great, and the stay was great!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a harbour view!

This motel is an excellent choice for Tofino. Our room was very clean and comfortable and included a refrigerator. There was a small balcony with a lovely view of the harbor. But if your neighbors are on their balconies, privacy is limited as it's easy to hear their conversations. Parking can be tight if the motel is full. The manager was very helpful with tips for beach walks and restaurants, and there are fantastic options for both of these very close to the motel.

Tofino can be quite an expensive place to stay, and in the past we've stayed at other properties such as Long Beach Lodge, Tin Wis etc. This time we wanted something more reasonable in price and somewhere close to the town centre so that we could walk to dinner etc. Trawling the net we stumbled upon this property and I have to say that staying here was one of the best decisions we made. It was excellent, fantastic value for money, great location, clean room, decent bathroom, comfortable beds, amazing view, I could go on.

Suffice it to say that we will definitely stay here again when we visit next year. In fact we weren't going to travel back to Tofino so soon but our stay here convinced us that we should - so we will!

We usually don't stay in motels, and I have to say our experience here was great. We only stayed one night, but the room was very clean and comfortable. We had a great view of the harbor from the patio. We were in walking distance to the the shops and restaurants, which was nice. Would definitely stay here again if I find myself in Tofino for another trip. The only caveat we had to deal with was there was a cat who wanted to try to come into our room when we had the back door open for a breeze. There weren't screens to keep it out, but let the breeze in.

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend on our second visit to Vancouver Island, and thought the rooms, the view, size of room and cleanliness excellent. However this could only be surpassed by the wonderful manager, Anne, who provided expert help when we were stranded with a flat tyre on our hire car and there was no spare tyre in the car only a puncture kit which didn't work! Anne organised for us to fly back to Vancouver to catch our return flights to Australia as well as negotiating with the hire car company to retrieve the car after we left. We can't thank her enough for making what could have been a disastrous end to our holiday (ie.missing our Australia flight) an exciting adventure and we caught our scheduled flights. Tofino itself is a lovely quaint village and the motel is in an excellent position with wonderful views. Thanks Anne (and your housekeeper) for helping to make our holiday a very memorable one. You're the best!
